Current Research

Modeling Supercapacitors (EDL batteries) - My current interest is in modeling salt water cpacitors for distributed energy storage. The following movie shows MD simulations used to explore capacitance at the atomic scale and power (capicance/time) for a porous graphite nacl brine battery: graphite_3nm.avi.

Photovoltaics - Future work will focus on electron transfer reacitons in photovoltaic sytems: metal nanoparticles and doped graphite systems.
